I have checked this issue with steps given in bug description and observed that it is working fine. HKCU\Software\Xamarin\Inspector still exists after follow the complete steps give in bug description.
1. Install Workbooks XamarinInteractive-18.104.22.1680_a43c46b2c492a38ca99c04bb7c1f0cd38f137e60
2. Verify that HKCU\Software\Xamarin\Inspector exists.
3. Install VS2017 RC, select Xamarin workload (installs XVS 22.214.171.1244)
